Default Tampa Marriott Waterside?

Anyone stay at the Tampa Marriott Waterside recently? Any comments? Would appreciate any info, as we stayed at the Double Tree last time and were very disappointed. Thanks!

We loved sailing out of Tampa last July. We arrived the day before and stayed at the Tampa Mariott Waterside which is located on one of the waterways. ( We got a really good week-end rate using AAA. ) It is a beautiful hotel, and we were more than pleased with our choice. After checking in at the Mariott, we boarded the trolley which has a turning station right in front of the hotel. We rode it into Ybor City, and then continued on the route until we arrived at Channelside where the cruise terminal is. While there, we visited the Florida State Aquarium, ate at one on the restaurants (on the water) and familiarized ourselves with the terminal area for the next morning. There are bars, shops, plenty of restaurants, and even a movie theater. After we finished exploring that evening, we hopped on the trolley and headed back to the Marriott. Once we returned to our room, we enjoyed sitting on our balcony watching all of the marina activity that night. It was a wonderful way to begin our vacation! When we woke up the next morning, we went out on our balcony and looked to the left, and there was The Legend docked on the same waterway that our hotel was! It was an awesome sight. I took my mom (she was 81 at the time), and we felt just as safe as we could be!
